Title: 1965T3374 Tea Cup and Saucer
Description: 1965T3374
Turned, Wooden Tea Cup and Saucer, 1800-1900
Wooden cups and saucers are unusual objects and it is rare to find such a finely turned piece as this pear wood example. It was probably made in England during the 19th century. It would have been made as a virtuoso piece, to show off the considerable skill of the turner, rather than as a functional item.
